Lucia: Weekly Italian Specials

July 22, 2015 4:34 pm

Monday through Thursday, Kirkland residents can enjoy a discounted night out at Lucia. From half off bottles of wine on Tuesdays to two-for-one pasta all day on Mondays, Lucia spoils its guests with more than its hearty Italian cuisine. You can enjoy $5 martinis on Wednesdays or $5 drink specials on Thursday evening, which is also Ladies’ Night.

Any day of the week, the Italian restaurant treats taste buds to such entrees as potato gnocchi with boneless short ribs, grilled sockeye salmon in a white wine reduction, or Lucia’s signature spaghetti made with white truffle oil fondue, homemade meatballs, and shaved black truffles. Before these elegant entrees arrive at tables, kill the suspense by biting into appetizers that include Dungeoness crab cakes, tomato and basil bruschetta, and caramelized pear onion pizzetta with gorgonzola cheese and red onion jam.

Easy Ways to Reduce Household Waste

July 15, 2015 4:02 pm

Even if you make a point to recycle, you would likely be shocked to see how much waste your household produces each year. By following a few smart tips, you can greatly cut down on your household waste and make a positive impact on the environment in the process.

  1. Take control of junk mail. You likely don’t put much thought into it, but all of that junk mail that arrives at your door amounts to a great deal of waste. Contact the Mail Preference Service and indicate that you don’t wish to have your information given out for future promotions and mailings.
  2. Donate as much as possible. Everything from clothing to old furniture can be donated to charity shops in your area, and you can even ask for a receipt to receive tax write-offs.
  3. Plan meals in advance. To avoid tossing out food that’s gone bad, plan meals in advance and only purchase the ingredients that you specifically need. This will save you money on grocery bills as well.
  4. Shop second hand. To eliminate the amount of new goods you bring into your home, think about which items you can purchase second hand instead.
  5. Avoid disposable items. There are likely a number of items in your home that you don’t realize have non-disposable alternatives. For example, purchase rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones to limit your household waste.
